SAVE THE DATE! Rally To STOP the Injunctions!

SPEAKERS—TESTIMONIES—SPOKEN WORD—STREET THEATER

Thursday April 22nd at 12:30pm: Rally at the Courthouse, 1221 Oak St., Dept 20, Oakland

To all of our Allies,

Over the past six weeks, Oakland community members, organizers, attorneys and impacted families have gathered to form a broadbased coalition to stop the proposed ‘gang’ injunctions in North Oakland. In March, the injunction was filed by the Oakland City Attorney and has a clear agenda of raising property taxes in this gentrifying neighborhood while blatantly codifying sweeping racial profiling and criminalizing the day-to-day activities of youth of color.

Impacted communities are demanding the resources it would take to enforce this injunction be invested in addressing root causes of violence and real solutions for building healthy, affordable communities for everyone. The rally is scheduled to coincide with the preliminary hearing and is an important opportunity to challenge the injunction and raise awareness about this Oakland-wide issue.

In Solidarity,

While the right to assemble and associate freely with one's peers is an inalienable right, gangs still suck. One hopes that the folks organizing against the racist profiling and attacks on youth of color are also working to educate the young people about how stupid, violent, sociopathic and counter-revolutionary gangs are.

If it's a violent, sociopathic group, then we have every U.S. police department and every branch of the U.S. military as prime examples. Can we get an injunction against them?
by me
has been killing and terrorizing people in the North Oakland flatlands for years. Almost every murder in this area over the last couple of years has been caused by the actions of these assholes. I guarantee this protest won't go beyond the scoop of the usual left/anarcho ghetto. Local residents won't more policing not less. That's the truth.
by me
Local residents WANT more policing not less. That's the truth.
